Lerer’s Theory of Media Evolution

Friday, March 11
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Hilton Austin Downtown
Salon G
500 E 4th St

Media has been completely transformed over the last few years. Advancements in technology (across digital, mobile, social) are changing the way we communicate and consume content and both digital and traditional media companies are constantly pivoting to keep up. Media businesses that have been around for decades are suddenly forced to close up shop as the landscape continues to shift. At the same time, new publishers are popping up left and right as media becomes democratized and the tools necessary to publish become easily accessible.

Join Ben Lerer as he takes you on a journey through the evolution of media and what he predicts the future will hold for this ever-changing industry.
